33 smaller parties declare protests
The poll-opposing 33 smaller parties' alliance on Wednesday declared protests mainly to obstruct the electoral candidates' registration process for the upcoming Constituent Assembly polls.
A meeting of 33 parties led by Mohan Baidya of CPN-Maoist took a decision to this effect today.
The protest programs include organizing mass meeting focused on poll-boycott in major cities of the country and taking out protest rallies, among others.
Earlier, talks with the 33 parties did not yield results, as they were adamant on postponing the November 19 elections.
The four major parties said they were flexible during talks but were not able to accept the conditions of poll postponement and the change of government. Nepalnews.com
